About the event
The Association for Coaching is delighted to invite you to attend an evening workshop Dialogical Fitness: Essential preparation for high-quality coaching conversations with Dr Gordon Spence.
Dialogue has been described as the "art of thinking together". It is a way of talking that enables shared ownership of solutions, based on the respectful exchange of personal viewpoints and open questioning of assumptions. Dialogue sits at the heart of all forms of coaching, including team and group coaching. For many coaches, being in dialogue with clients is an ongoing aspiration, however, dialogue can be elusive, requiring well honed micro skills. In this workshop Gordon will argue that dialogue requires deliberate and disciplined preparation, and he will outline a model that shows how the management of four energy reserves (physiological, cognitive, emotional and spirit) is critical to facilitating dialogue with others. Implications for practice will be explored using examples.
